Abstract

The first part of the guidelines and recommendations for musculoskeletal ultrasound, produced under the auspices of the European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB), provides information about the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound for assessing extraarticular structures (muscles, tendons, entheses, ligaments, bones, bursae, fasciae, nerves, skin, subcutaneous tissues, and nails) and their pathologies. Clinical applications, practical points, limitations, and artifacts are described and discussed for every structure. After an extensive literature review, the recommendations have been developed according to the Oxford Centre for Evidence-based Medicine and GRADE criteria and the consensus level was established through a Delphi process. The document is intended to guide clinical users in their daily practice.
Der erste Teil der Leitlinien und Empfehlungen für den muskuloskelettalen Ultraschall, die unter der Schirmherrschaft der European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) erstellt wurden, enthält Informationen über den Einsatz des muskuloskelettalen Ultraschalls zur Beurteilung von extraartikulären Strukturen (Muskeln, Sehnen, Gelenke, Bänder, Knochen, Schleimbeutel, Faszien, Nerven, Haut, subkutanes Gewebe und Nägel) und deren Pathologien. Für jede Struktur werden die klinische Anwendung, praktische Punkte, Einschränkungen und Artefakte beschrieben und diskutiert. Nach einer ausführlichen Literaturrecherche wurden die Empfehlungen gemäß den Kriterien des Oxford Centre for Evidence-based Medicine und den GRADE-Kriterien entwickelt, und der Konsensgrad wurde durch die Delphi-Methode ermittelt. Das Dokument ist als Leitfaden für klinische Anwender in der täglichen Praxis gedacht.
